I had always assumed I just had a bunch of sweet potato vine, but this year I started to notice all the different shaped leaves. I have posted five pictures of different vines, I didn't want to do five different posts. If it's too confusing let me know if I need to do all seperate posts. Thank You!
Pic # 1&2 are in full sun.
Pic #3 is mainly growing in areas where it gets part sun
Pic #4 is growing under a maple tree,
Pic #5 is on a fence line that only gets a small amount of filtered sun.
ok, so far I know #1 isn't milkweed.
I'm thinking #5 is probably a type of smilax, I initially thought it looked like the Bristly Greenbriar (smilax something or other) that keeps coming up in my flower bed. I didn't know the botanical name til now.
Just looking through google images I can see smilax and snail seed in all of them except #2 lol.
Haven't had a chance to look into wild cucumber for 2 but I didn't see wild grape in it. I do think I found two types of wild grape vine in my yard.
Hopefully I'll have more time to research later today, but right now I have a two year old boy demanding my attention!
you know 5 could be snailseed even.
its very similar to the arboreal snailseed I see around my house (vs. the sprawling ground creeper), kind of like how english ivy has the 3-5 point leaves on the ground and more heart shaped as it matures, usually in the air.
(The last one is wilted a bit because I cut it yesterday.)
